A blog for everyone so make sure to stick with me till the end and I’ll show you how to get access to this bonus but for now, let’s get right into this review after purchase setup and ease of use right away from their hosting dashboard it looks very simple and clean you can add a website easily or go to manage the website you want to work on and once you’re in the domains dashboard you can see it looks very easy to navigate with the custom h panel interface compared to the Cpanel that a lot of other hosting providers use the design is also very clean and simple now let’s see how easy it is to install and create our WordPress website so now we go back to hosting one more time and click on manage now we can scroll down to auto-installer and click on that and now select WordPress and fill out the information that you want here and if you’re.
Happy with everything then go down here and click on install now give it a bit of time to load until it’s done and what about installing an SSL certificate I will show you that now too if you click on the search button and type in SSL you will come down and click on this SSL button here and then click on install and that’s it it’s done with one click of a button very simple now what about creating an email account so you simply just go to email click on email accounts and we come down to here and we just put in the name we want now type in your password then click on create okay it’s that simple you see here our email address test at helenborch.com has been installed so the three things that I showed you how to install were very easy they were all one click in stores which is really good from Hostinger overall I would score.
Hosting a 10 out of 10 for setup and ease of use really can’t fault them on anything in this area I think all users especially beginners would love how clean their new interface is and just how easy it is to navigate and do things to your site personally think this is one of the cleanest users interface out of all the ones I tested so far I’m very impressed with hosting it here speed and uptime performance test so after I have installed the basic WordPress site I went ahead and tested out the speed of the bare bones website using gt metrics the result is 1.4 seconds this is a great start even though this is not the fastest in my test I must say they are very close so now I would take it a step further and add some design elements to it to increase the page size and don’t worry if you’re overwhelmed looking at this my course that I will provide you.
Supporting the channel will guide you through this step by step I’m also going to install some free plugins to speed up the website first I’m going to install the wp fastest cache which is for the speed optimization and short pixel which is for image optimization and lastly, I will install the free Cloudflare app which will also increase the website performance with their CDN this will make it more comparable to what you would do in real life the speed is now 3.2 seconds which is once again not the fastest compared to the top performing ones in my test but it is still around google recommended site load speed of 3 seconds hosting it still has one thing up its sleeve to try and get under that magical 3-second mark which is the lightspeed cache plugin now if I replace wp faster’s a cache with lightspeed cache plugin which.
Is recommended by hosting it to be the best free choice the speed is now three seconds flat which is just a pass with a 0.2-second improvement from before now I have been monitoring the stability performance of Hostinger with uptime robot and can report that their uptime for the last 30 days is a perfect 100 in fact they have not had any downtime for over 50 days in a row which is very impressive overall I would rate hosting a speed and uptime performance and 8 out of 10. I took 2 marks away for their speed as it was a fair bit slower than the fastest hosting providers I tested their uptime reliability however is second to none so well done to hosting it on that part here’s a quick question for you do you think hosting is the page load speed of 3 seconds flat is faster or slower than what you expected to let me know in the comments section below.
Support hosting and provide customer support through email and live chat I will test them out by asking these three different questions on live chat first I will tell them that I have been infected by a virus on my website and ask for their help the second question is I ask them a quick question about their domain name renewal costs and the last question is I asked them if they could do me a favor and install the SSL certificate and Cloudflare for me as I am a complete newbie and have no idea how to do this here are their results one they were willing to look into it right away and did a quick scan forme manually they don’t provide a malware removal service but offered to restore the previous backup version without the virus for free for the second question I found out that they don’t have live chat for potential new customers trying to contact.
Them which is pretty disappointing for me to find out about this as I expect all hosting providers to have 24 7 live chat support as a minimum so I had to send them an email instead and it took about 28 minutes to reply so this wasn’t that good either and for the third question they were willing to help and did everything for me right away and it only took them about 15 minutes to finish everything for me which I was really happy with regards to their response time I contacted them at three different times of the day to make sure I get an overall average and not just a biased fast response time during their off-peak hours so the three times were 9 minutes 28 minutes and 4 minutes the average of those three times turns out to be 14-minute wait which is definitely a little too long for me I think the max wait time for any hosting company.
Should be kept to under 5 minutes overall I would have to score hosting and support 6 out of 10 I would say their support overall was average it was nothing great but it wasn’t the worst either their team was actually knowledgeable but they had a pretty bad response time at 14 minutes when compared to other hosting providers they also lost more points for me because they did not have 24 7 live chat support for new customers looking to sign up with Hostinger do you like the level of detail I’m providing in my review so far if yes just make sure to let me know by liking my video and also don’t forget to subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss out on more quality content that I’ll be releasing here every single week pricing options click on the link in the description or type this into your browser it will take you to my special hosting a discount page where you.
Will get the best discount hosting is currently offering I also have a special custom coupon code that you can use to get an extra discount and I will show you exactly how later in this video now i will be comparing their shared hosting plan although Hostinger does offer other types of hosting like cloud and VPS hosting so they can support you when your business grows and you are ready for an upgrade now if you scroll down you can choose the plan that you are looking for and hosting it offers three different shared hosting plans with a single tier you are limited to just one website however on the hiring plan you can have up to 100 websites another notable difference is the SSD storage for the single plan is just 10gigabytes but increases to 20 gigabytes on the premium plan and 100 gigabytes on their business plan the bandwidth between the plans are also.
Very different for the single plan you will only be allowed around 10 000 visitors per month then it increases to 25 000 and then 100 000 on their highest plan a great free bonus which hosting it provides on their two highest plans are the free domain and unlimited email accounts and lastly, a worthy feature which hosting it provides on their highest plan is the free automated daily backup many companies don’t provide this feature at also provided at an extra cost but hosting it does have it for free for you on their highest plan so overall the decision is very simple to make really with Hostinger if you only need one website go for the single plan but if you are just starting out but need multiple websites then the premium plan is the way to go last if you’re migrating from another host where you already have websites with lots of traffic then I would highly recommend you.
Choose their business plan so now I will choose their business plan for this tutorial to test them out now on the checkout page you can see there are four different pricing options depending on how long you want to buy the hosting for so I always recommend and would always buy the longest plan as it will give me the cheapest per month price there is not much point buying it for one month 12 month or 24 months when you see the price of 48 months is only 3.99 once you have chosen your hosting provider which you’re happy with not saying that it’s hosting it yet you’ll normally stick with them for a very long time but if hosting is not right for you then you always have their 30-day money-back guarantee to refund your whole purchase and get all your money back so I’ll stick with this one for here and go down to the payment section and this is where you can.
Get the extra discount by using my coupon code so if you go and click on have a coupon code and enter in dot com dollar into the coupon code section and click the plus button you can see the price has been further reduced from 191 dollars to 178 dollars from their already discounted price so if you do want to go ahead with Hostinger i do recommend you use this coupon code for your extra discount and now you fill out your payment details and click on submit secure payment the overall pricing score i would give Hostinger is a 9 out of 10. they are a really cheap hosting provider starting at just 99 cents per month and they are really transparent with the usage limits which are allowed in each hosting plan they also use lightspeed cache for WordPress on all their plans which is one of the best and most efficient ways of speeding up your WordPress website right now.
This technology is not available in many hosting providers they are mostly only available to a more high-end hosting service so well done to hosting here for bringing this feature to all their customers at a very affordable price I did take one mark off them as they don’t offer the automatic daily backup on all their plans you will only get it on their highest business plan this is something I believe is very important for users and web hosting providers should always provide them as a standard feature on all their plans this is a quick note regarding my bonus offer to you if you decide to pick up hosting it through my link then just send me your receipt to bonus dot com dollar dot com and I’ll send you back access to my bonus course and if you want my free checklist on starting a successful blog then just go to this link in the description and you can get.
Access from their recommendation overall I have given posting an average score of eight out of ten they are a really solid hosting provider they have cheap hosting plans and the user interface is clean and easy to navigate and their speed and time performance is also great so this is my recommendation for you whether you’re a beginner or advanced user looking for a well-rounded hosting provider who is above average in all areas then I believe Dreamhost is worth considering however if you care about a particular aspect more than others like speed performance or support and you want the best of that criteria then I don think dream host is the right option for you now I think picking the right hosting provider is such a crucial step in your business so it’s important that you get this right so if after watching this review.
If you think hosting is not the right hosting provider for you then I recommend you check out this hosting alternative which I know will do the job right but if you’re happy with hosting it then I recommend you go to check the Hostinger plans directly.
